Woman's Own - - Contents -

TV star Judy Fin­ni­gan has con­fessed she has lived her life with the worry that she was go­ing to go blind.

Re­cently open­ing up, Judy, 69, said she has al­ways con­cerned that she would con­tract agere­lated mac­u­lar de­gen­er­a­tion (AMD) – the same dis­ease her mum suf­fered from. Judy ex­plained, ‘It robbed my mother of her sight and made the last 15 years of her long life a grow­ing mis­ery.

‘Ter­ri­ble eye­sight runs through my fam­ily. Blind­ness, glau­coma, AMD, you name it,’ the star added. How­ever, for­tu­nately for the mum-of-four, she can now shelve her con­cerns, as re­searchers have found a cure, which can help re­store sight. Judy wrote, ‘I breathed “hal­lelu­jah” this week. The worst fu­ture health fear I have may at last have dis­si­pated.

‘Maybe at last I can stop wor­ry­ing,’ she con­tin­ued.

What a re­lief. Glad to hear it, Judy!
